I personally like the Sombrero a little better but these stables are a really close second. The Wranglers are great and very friendly. The scenery is just beautiful. You won't go wrong going to either place.

We went to the Cowpoke Corner for the 2 hour $50 ride. It was raining and lightning but the young leader kept saying, that if we cancel we still have to pay but if they (the company) cancel, then we get reimbursed. There were 2 adults and 3 children between 11-12 years old. They said it was safe so we... More

We had family join us for a trail ride that took us 2 hours into the park and back. It is very pretty and an easy ride for beginners. Some of the more experienced riders would have enjoyed a bit more freedom, but they had fun as well.

Loved the views and our guide. Great tour! One of the many things we did to make our trip the best vacation we've had as a family

The scenery was beautiful, but didn't get to enjoy it much because the trail guide was turned to us in her saddle and talking (not about what we were seeing, but asking about each persons life) the ENTIRE time! I don't mind learning a bit of something about others, but not to the point that you can't take in your... More

Though we had a bit of trouble finding this place, having to drive in from DT Denver, and trying to make a 7:45 arrival time, we did have a great time. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful,though maybe one of them got up on the wrong side of the bed. But off we went with Frank as... More

I did the 4 hour ride through Rocky Mountain National Park last week. It was a great ride although I would agree with another reviewer in that our guide didn't give us a whole lot of information. I rode with 2 couples and the guide and for the most part, the trip was very quiet. We stayed in the same... More

The views were great and definitely a somewhat different perspective than you get from the road. We did the 4 hour ride and expected to hear some interesting things from the guide about the area, but it was a very quiet ride. I guess it really wasn't what we were expecting to get out of a guide who rides through... More

Our family of 4 (2 girls ages 8 and 10) did the 2-hour ride at 10am. Dynett (sp?) was our guide and she was great with the kids, especially making sure their saddles were keeping them sitting straight. She was really informative and this was a great way to see parts of the Rockies that we otherwise wouldn't have seen.... More

A large group of us were in Estes Park for a wedding. A few of us were looking for some adventures in the area. We were told by our great hotel Murphy's River Lodge about this adventure. Four of us went on this horse back ride. We paid $50 for 2 hour ride through the Rocky Mountain National park. It... More
